RTW Expands TM3 Series Availability at Broadcast Asia 2015
RTW, the market leader in visual audio meters and monitoring devices, is unveiling firmware version 3.5 for its TM3 TouchMonitor series at Broadcast Asia 2015 (Stagetec Asia, Stand 5E6-01). This software upgrade enables RTW to make the TM3 series available as Premium Series products, allowing customers to experience the company's latest loudness solutions at a variety of price points.
 
Previously, the TM3, RTW's most compact, budget-friendly TouchMonitor device, was only available within the company's Smart Series of products. Now, as part of RTW's Premium Series, and with the new enhanced software bundle, RTW has made its full line of custom-order software instrument licenses available to TM3 users, providing them with a full feature set at a budget-friendly price. The following TM3 devices available with the listed software bundles are now part of the RTW Premium category: TM3-2CH (TM3-SWB1), TM3-6CH (TM3-SWB2) and TM3-3G 8CH (TM3-SWB3). 
 
As for its Smart Series TM3 units (TM3, TM3-6CH, and TM3-3G), firmware version 3.5 allows the user to purchase a software bundle as a license upgrade for activating all licenses and for expanding the completed feature set with the new Loudness Chart instrument. For the completely equipped TM3 Smart and TM3-3G Smart units, which are bundled by RTW's factory with all available licenses and instruments, users of these units will automatically receive the expanded feature set with the Loudness Chart instrument.
 
The Loudness Chart instrument is used to display the progress of a measurement (TP, M, S, or I value over time) as a line or colored area under the curve on a coordinate system with selectable time range. Additionally, the tolerance range can be displayed as a corridor. A dynamic line will show the position of the Relative Gate in relation to the "I" value, and an additional bar graph for the display of the current "I" loudness value can be selected.
 
Further, when the corresponding firmware software bundle has been installed, future instruments and functions can be added via firmware update automatically. RTW plans to add the following classic TouchMonitor instruments as part of forthcoming software upgrades for all TM3 units: RTA (Real-Time-Analyzer), SSA (Surround-Sound-Analyzer) and VSC (Audio-Vectorscope).
 
The TM3 and TM3-3G Smart Series products incorporate the company's Devicer DC1 software, which allows users to personalize and adapt existing presets to their needs, and create several configuration sets with different presets that can be uploaded to the devices. Ideal for editorial offices, edit suites, control rooms and other applications requiring easily readable, out-of-the-box loudness-compliant level control, the Smart Series handles analog or digital stereo signals. The TM3 can control up to six channels of digital signals and the TM3-3G can send up to 16 SDI audio signals to eight AES3 outputs.
 
Along with PPM and true peak instruments, the TM3 Smart and TM3-3G Smart offer single-channel and summing bargraphs, loudness range, loudness chart and numerical display instruments for loudness measurement, with supported loudness standards including EBU R128, ITU-R BS.1770-3/1771-1, ATSC A/85, ARIB, OP-59, AGCOM and CALM Act. The devices' moving-coil instruments display stereo signals with different scales and modes (PPM, VU, loudness, BBC). 
 
Designed for workstations, edit suites, musicians and small site operations, the compact monitors come with a highly intuitive and user-friendly 4.3-inch touch screen interface that allows for vertical and horizontal operation with a full set of easy-to-read instruments for level and loudness metering that can be preset. 
 
What's more, the TM3-3G is designed for metering, de-embedding and monitoring 3G-SDI audio signals as an integrated 3G-SDI de-embedder interface.
